Organised by NUS Medicine, the Medical Grand Challenge began in 2017 and aims to inculcate an inquisitive instinct among NUS Medicine undergraduates, while encouraging creativity and entrepreneurship. Through the multi-disciplinary nature of the competition, the Challenge also seeks to foster collaborative teamwork among students from different faculties and backgrounds.
Over the past year, some students have gone through interdisciplinary boot camps to develop and refine their proposed solutions and prototypes to a number of existing healthcare problems.
The 2019 edition of the Challenge concluded on 7 September, with the efforts of the 14 teams assessed by a panel of judges from a variety of industries such as information technology, healthcare and engineering.
This year's winning teams were Kenn (1st place), Project 21 (2nd place), and PI Probe (3rd place). Special mention was given to the team behind PulseRed for a commendable effort!
